Kidd Cole (born Jerez Nehemiah Stone-Coleman on January 17, 1995) is an American rapper. Though claiming to be a hip-hop producer, Kidd gained his most fame from appearing on a May 2014 episode of the MTV television series, Catfish. During the episode, Kidd said he was a part of Kanye West’s GOOD Music record label. After he was revealed as a fraud, he admitted he grew up in foster care and that his scam was an attempt to get attention. Kidd refused to do a follow-up interview. Kidd was revealed to be awaiting mental evaluation after he was caught scamming Virginia Commonwealth University into thinking he was arranging an appearance by Big Sean. Kidd is reportedly a producer who worked with West Coast rapper YG. In May 2015, Kidd was arrested for making 11 bomb and terror threats against Washington, D.C. Metro trains and busses.
